In recent years, the market for destination weddings has grown to over 25 percent of the wedding market, and Destination Weddings & Honeymoons grew along with it. The mission of the pub is to give readers help with planning and ideas “to get through the experience with minimum stress and maximum joy,” said editor-in-chief Susan Moynihan.
PR pros can pitch everything from destinations and hotels to the invitations and flowers for the big day, as long as it relates to a destination wedding. “We rarely cover a venue, hotel or destination without a staff member or freelancer visiting,” said Moynihan. “That said, we are always interested in newsworthy nuggets, such as hotel openings, hotel renovations, hotel additions, new packages, new hotel brands/concepts, real weddings, news within a destination (easier marriage requirements, new independent wedding sites). Product pitches are also very helpful for our FOB departments.”
